Diversity and Fandom 102: How You Can Make a Difference
Sunday, July 24 · 10:00am - 11:00am
Room 24ABC

In the wake of campaigns like Racebending.com's protests and the rise of safe spaces like Racialicious.com, fans, consumers and creators from underrepresented groups have more outlets for speaking up. This panel explores how those voices can be added to conversations with geeky business interests and fan communities.

Actor Dante Basco (Avatar: The Last Airbender), showrunner/writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach (The Middleman), author Malinda Lo (Huntress), Arturo Garcia (Racialicious.com), Phil Yu (AngryAsianMan.com) and USC Professor Henry Jenkins (CivicPaths Project) promise a lively discussion, moderated by Racebending.com!.

*sigh* I've always wanted to go to Comic Con and now I'm even sadder that I won't be there. I DEMAND A FULL REPORT. :P

THIS. I demand at least one of those shoddy recordings from someone's camera!
